Dover International Speedway is called the Monster Mile for a reason – and that monster chewed up all four Team Interstate cars Sunday, turning a promising day sour.

All four teams started in the top 10, and at times it appeared they would all stay there for the finish. But by the time the checkered flag waved, Carl Edwards led the team with a 19th place finish. Late-race accidents left Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch back in 21st and 36th, respectively, and a broken track bar mount placed Matt Kenseth in 39th.

“I hate it for my guys,” said Kyle, the driver of the No. 18 Skittles/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry. “Man, we had a really good run going obviously –we ran in the top-five all day long. We weren’t going to win today, but it doesn’t help when you go from likely finishing third all the way to where we ended up.”

After missing the first 11 races of the season to injury, Kyle must earn a win and place himself in the top 30 in points to be eligible for the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. The 36th-place finish makes his uphill climb a little steeper.

Jimmie Johnson won the AAA 400, his fourth win of the season and his 10th career victory at Dover.
